Subject: [council] Motion for the Reponse to ICANN Board letter to GNSO




During yesterdays discussions it was determined that a Review Team should be
developed to review the issues and positions of members within the GNSO with
regard to the ICANN Board letter to the GNSO in order to formulate the
appropriate response to that letter.


Please see the suggested motion below. We would propose to vote on this
motion on Wednesday?s GNSO Council meeting. Whilst we understand that this
does not allow for the usual seven days we would ask that, on this occasion,
because of the tight timelines, that all Stakeholder Groups act quickly to
discuss this motion (potentially utilising time during Stakeholder Group day
on Tuesday).


Glen ? could you please forward this to each Stakeholder Group chair in
order to promote this motion as efficiently as possible? Thanks!








WHEREAS, the ICANN Board has requested that the GNSO evaluate certain ICANN
staff implementation proposals for the protection of trademarks in new gTLDs
based in part on the recommendations from the IRT, public comments, and
additional analysis undertaken by ICANN Staff, as described in the letter
dated 12 October 2009 <<Letter
df>  from Rod Beckstrom & Peter Dengate Thrush to GNSO Council>>.


WHEREAS, the ICANN Board letter requests the GNSO?s view by December 14,
2009 on whether certain rights protection mechanisms for second level
strings recommended by ICANN Staff based on public input are consistent with
the GNSO?s proposed policy on the introduction of new gTLDs, and are the
appropriate and effective options for achieving the GNSO?s stated principles
and objectives;


WHEREAS, the GNSO has reviewed the ICANN Board letter and desires to approve
the procedures for conducting such evaluation;


NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the GNSO adopts the following process to
conduct the evaluation requested by the Board:


1.                   A GNSO Review Team will be comprised of representatives
designated as follows:  the Registrar and Registry Stakeholder Groups with
two (2) representatives each,  the Commercial Stakeholder Groups and the
Non-Commercial Stakeholder Groups with four (4) representatives each, and
At-Large with two (2) representatives and one representative from the
Nominating Committee Appointees(1);


2.                   Each of the Stakeholder Groups will solicit from their
members their initial position statements on the questions and issues raised
by the ICANN Board letter and the ICANN Staff proposed models for the
implementation of the Trademark Clearinghouse and Uniform Rapid Suspension
model, and will deliver their initial position statements on November 4, and
with final position statements to be delivered by November 6, 2009;


3.                   Such position statements will be summarized by ICANN
Staff and distributed to the GNSO Review Team to evaluate whether a
consensus can be reached on the ICANN Staff implementation models or other
proposals for the protection of trademarks in the New gTLD Program; and


The GNSO Review Team will conduct its analysis, identify those areas where
consensus has already been reached, an seek to develop consensus on those
issues for which consensus could not be determined. The GNSO Review Team
will provide a final report to the GNSO on or before the GNSO council?s
meeting in late November, 2009.
